    The drum spun freely. We first replaced the top right panel,then we connected a new front panel,none of those solved the problem. There is a panel on the back bottom and when they replaced that the washer worked! It cost a little over $200 for the part and labor.

    Wires don't come loose unless someone keeps pulling on them. Check the trouble code, see if it is F 2 or F 20. This tells you there is a problem with the board.

SOURCE: I have a Kenmore Elete 45862401 Quiet Pac2 front

With the front door open, see if you can rotate the basket freely.  If not, most likely the bearing of the rear tub is worn out.  You will have to replace the whole rear tub which is about $300 for the part.  I am having the same issue with my Kenmore Elite Quiet Pak 2.  I'm contemplating with just buy a new top-load washer.

I have an f6 code and the machine will not operate once it comes up


The F6 error code means that the computer on the control didnt detect that the motor reached a high speed on the spin cycle, sometimes it thinks the washer didnt spin fast enough because of a loose wire connection either on the motor or the control boards (motor &machine control) if you find that the washer did actually spin at high speed (clothes dont come out sopping wet at the end of cycle) the wire connections or the motor control board will be the potential causes of the F6 error code. Try unplugging the machine for five minutes to let the computer reset then try again. Next check the control panel wires. f6 code flashing on display Kenmore Elite HE3 Washing Machine

How do i know if control board is bad causing a f6 code


If you take the code book out of the washer. Or if you have a service manual. Then go though the code list. it should tell you what the f6 code is. That's how I sound the problem with the problem with the RPM sensor. Replaced it and the machine works fine. It should tell you what part of the machine the code is from.

F06 error code


F6 error indicate a Motor Speed error code. It is likely attributed to either a broken or slipped drive belt, defective Drive Motor, defective Motor Control Unit (MCU), or the interconnecting wiring between the two.

Could be a loose connection in the harnesses, dad Motor, bad motor control board, bad main control board. It's most likely a bad motor control board.

Here is the one parts for your model:
- Electronic control assembly
- Motor Control Unit
- Drive Motor

Also, remember that RepairClinic.com will refund all parts within 30 days that you purchase from them if they don't fix the problem, EVEN electronic parts.

Hope this helps.

Why does the washer stop during a load and "F 06"


Hello,

The F6 error code means that the computer on the control didnt detect that the motor reached a high speed on the spin cycle, sometimes it thinks the washer didnt spin fast enough because of a loose wire connection either on the motor or the control boards (motor &machine control) if you find that the washer did actually spin at high speed (clothes dont come out sopping wet at the end of cycle) the wire connections or the motor control board will be the potential causes of the F6 error code

Mine keeps giving me a F6 error, any ideas


F6 is a communication error. It is either a loose connection to the control board, or the control board is shot. They should have diagnosed this when they came out to fix it. Open it up, and look for loose connections.

"f6" error code means that there a miss communication between mcu(motor speed control board) and ccu(central control unit). i recommend you to ohm out the motor. most likely its your motor speed control located at the bottom left of the washer good luck. replace the motor speed control board and you should be all set to go.

Frigidaire dryer feq1442e error code 9e, what does it mean?


The error code 9E indicates that low voltage is being detected at the control board of the dryer. This could be caused by the following factors:
  • The electrical power supply to the dryer is bad. Check the dryer outlet for proper voltage (120 volts AC).
  • Unplug the dryer and check the wiring of the dryer outlet plug. A loose wire on the terminal block could cause this problem.
  • If you are able to safely access the control board in the console, check the red wire that connects to the heater relay on the board. (NOTE: The dryer should always be unplugged when accessing internal components.) A loose wire or burned connection in this area could result in this error code.
  • A failed control board could cause this problem.
If you are unable to determine and repair the cause of this problem, I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your dryer.

Good Luck
